Avenue Nursery was first established in 1941. We have grown from
propagating and selling only junipers and mugo pines into a full-scale
four acre nursery. Plants are our specialty – it’s our
passion. Single or grouped, prickly or soft, twisted or weeping,
red, blue, short, tall, fat or narrow – we love them all and
are proud to offer top-notch quality and selection. Our specialties
include unique and unusual Japanese maples and conifers. We offer
a huge variety of shade, flowering and fruit trees, including specimen-sized
trees, topiary, shrubs, perennials and seasonal annuals. Cedar furniture,
containers of all types and yard art whimsy compliment your landscaping
dreams. Under the same ownership and management for over 25 years,
first time visitors will chuckle at the antique trucks "planted"
in the front display garden.
a park-like atmosphere for shopping or simply dreaming up your
garden oasis while enjoying the fine selection and spacious displays
of conifers, shrubs and trees.
hundreds of garden centers that I visit each year, Portland Avenue
Nursery stands out not only for its high quality and unusual specimen
plant offerings, but in its unique utilization of antiques, collectibles
and vintage vehicles that enhance the landscape throughout the
nursery." - Joe Dixon
